Random Acts of Kindness

About this design:

I made this specifically for today, which is Random Acts of Kindness Day! I am gifting this to someone special who really needs some extra kindness, light and love. I literally made every bit of this. I made the chain from sterling silver wire and kyanite beads. I made the pendant from PMC3 silver clay, once it's fired it it .999 fine silver (pure) and then I added 24k accent gold for silver (real gold)


Sterling silver wire, kyanite (LB), PMC3 fine silver, 24k accent gold for silver

    Wow! Thank you! I’m actually on my way to see her now, I left it on her desk earlier hehehe…

    Seriously though, your comments made my day.

    Fresh Baked, PMC is pretty easy actually. There’s a few books I can recommend if you like. To fire the pieces you use a propane torch or you can use a single burner camp stove. I actually use the Speedfire Cone System. That’s how I fire mine. You fire by color and it’s easy to get the hang of and fairly user friendly.

    This is totally awesome Khristen. There chain is very professional. Loops are perfect and wrapped so they cannot open. I know how much more time it takes to wrap, rather than just having unwrapped loops. And I am with Fresh Baked. I would love to learn how to use precious metal clay. It’s not something I will do right away, but it’s definitely on my bucket list of things to learn. If you could give us the information you mentioned it would be great. And dragonflies – one of my favorites. The kyanite beads are so pretty. I love the idea of random acts of kindness every day of the year, but I didn’t know there was a specific day.

    Thanks, Khristin. I have a little bit of experience with PMC+, but have not tried adding the gold on silver. It’s beautiful!!
    Thanks for sharing your resources, too.
